Good evening ladies and gentlemen!

It’s a great pleasure to announce the release of Apache OpenWebBeans-1.7.3.

Apache OpenWebBeans is a CDI container (Contexts and Dependency Injection for 
Java) and targets the CDI-1.2 specification (JavaEE 7). It can be run 
standalone, in Servlet containers or fully integrated in JavaEE Containers.
We pass the standalone CDI TCK and the JavaEE7 CDI-TCK (inside Apache 

OpenWebBeans is modularly built and can be used either in pure Java SE, in a 
Servlet Container like e.g. Tomcat or in fully fledged JavaEE containers.
Our core is only 500k and thus brings full JavaEE compatibility at a smaller 
size than most so called ‚micro solutions‘.

OWB-1.7.3 is a bugfix release and at least requires Java7.

Distribution packages can be downloaded from
